Daily Care Fees
This is a general fee set by the Commonwealth government which is paid by all
Residents and is linked to the Aged Pension. It increases in line with the
pension, usually every six months. It equates to approximately 84% of the full
Accommodation Bonds: (LOW care only)
An accommodation bond may be payable for low care. It is a short term
loan to the facility and is guaranteed by the Commonwealth Government. The
amount is negotiated dependent on a Residents level of assets. Bonds can be
paid in lump sum, periodic extra monthly payments or a combination of both
Accommodation Charges: (HIGH care only)
An Accommodation Charge may be payable for HIGH care. This charge is
asset tested at entry and capped by the Government.
Note: A certain percentage of beds must be filled by Residents who do not pay
an accommodation bond or an accommodation charge.
Income Tested Fee:
The Commonwealth Government via Centrelink or DVA income tests all Residents
entering residential aged care. If a Resident is able to contribute towards
their own funding, instead of the government, they may be asked to do so. The
Provider of residential aged care must apply an income tested fee as instructed
by the Commonwealth Government.
Direct Debit is the preferred option and is payable a month in advance. Each
Resident is asked to complete a Direct Debit form on admission - there is no
fee associated with the direct debit service.
